Welcome to Things we read this week, a weekly post featuring articles from around the internet recommended by BMJ’s Digital Group members. These are articles we’ve read and liked, things that made us think and things we couldn’t stop talking about. Check back every Friday for a new post.
Hat tip to M.G. Siegler for alerting us to the narrate feature in Firefox. To listen to a BMJ article in Firefox:
- Go to a BMJ article for example: http://bmjopen.bmj.com/content/7/12/e017917
- Go to the Reader View by clicking on the Reader View icon in the address bar
- Then click on the “Narrate” button on the left hand side
- Listen and visually follow along to the text. You can change the voice to have a British or American accent.
